.s. consulate in benghazi in libya on september 11th of the year. the panel has just released its findings, and the report appears to place a lion's share of the blame for that attack on the u.s. state department. our own andrea mitchell is going through this report as we speak. again, it has just come out. but she reports tonight that the panel has found, quote, systemic failures in leadership management deficiencies at senior levels within two bureaus of the state department. those two bureaus described as diplomatic security and near eastern affairs. according to this report, those leadership deficiencies led to a security posture at that u.s. consulate in benghazi that was, quote, grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place. according to "the new york times" and their reporting on this report, secretary of state hillary clinton has accepted all 29 of the panel's recommendations, including a number of those recommendations that are and will presumably remain classified. again, the report on -- the independent report on the attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi in liby

and work continues for many people this week your work on the hill with the two benghazi hearings, one in the house and one in the senate this week. but news that secretary clinton is ill and has been injured with a concussion and will not testify. are you confident that others who will show up in her place will provide much-needed answers. >> i am sure they can provide answers, but ultimately, i believe that secretary clintonville to testify. i have a great respect for secretary clinton. no one would know more about this than she would. no one would be in a position, really to answer the tough questions of secretary clinton. once she has recovered, i believe it is important that she testify. i know that the chairwoman of the international affairs committee believes that secretary clinton is an indozensible witness. what happened in benghazi, there are so many unanswered questions, it appears so many things went wrong and too many people in the administration were trying to put out a false story, which accounts, i believe, for the constant changing of the story, as we have gone on and
is expected to face tough questions on capitol hill today about the benghazi attack. secretary of state clinton had been scheduled to testify at the hearing, but she's still recovering from a concussion. instead, her deputy, william burns, will be there. a scathing report blamed the state department for the attack and four top staffers have been relieved of their duties. >> and one clarification to make on that. all four officials remain as employees, but have been relieved of their current duties, but they're still employees of the state department for right now, pending further action. so they just weren't shown the door. it seems like they've been removed from their current job. and while they investigate. >> that makes sense, because given the report, i mean, you've got the deputy assistant secretary responsible for embassy security. you can't keep that job if something like this happens on your watch. you've got another person, assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security. >> the bottom line, that report seemed to me to be that there wasn't enough security and requests for
on the september 11 benghazi attacks in weeks. the news has been confirmed here on america's news headquarters yesterday. clinton will testify in front of the senate foreign relations committee and in an open hearing nfront of her committee. >> the american people want answers in an open setting. we are glad that secretary clinton will appear before us. >> we want to know what you think. will there be any new answers from secretary clinton? will her future ambitions factor in? tweet us your answers. we will read them later on in this show. the associated press is reporting that 3 people have been killed, four others have been wounded in some cupid of shooting there. we know two of the injured are children. we are checking into this. we will try to find out what this has all we will get it to you as soon as we have it. house speaker john boehner is taking heat from all sides, president obama is ripping him for tax hike refusal on those making $250,000 or more a year and the republicans are criticizing him for not pushing back enough. >> reporter: staving off the conservative rebellion, john jon
. an independent panel researching what happened in benghazi on september 11th is out with its report. and its findings lay heavy blame on the state department. it cites systemic failures and deficiencies in leadership and management. the report calls benghazi security efforts grossly inadequate. no one person is singled out in a report for having ignored or violated his or her responsibilities. but before it does hone in on chastising two departments within the state department, that would be the bureau of diplomatic security and the bureau of affairs. they lacked coordination and communication to protect our mission in benghazi. the report didn't find out anything new about the attack itself. we did find out that there was no protest that sparked the ambush as we know. this was all of the work of terrorists. the report makes 29 recommendations and secretary of state clinton says she will accept them all. she says there are already some recommendations in the plan. they've started implementing those. one would

to testify this week at a hearing about the benghazi attacks. but while suffering from a stomach virus, secretary clinton fainted, hit her head, and sustained a concussion. doctors told her to work from home this week. and her deputies will testify in her place. she's recuperating at her home. which means some righties smell a conspiracy. the new york post called the concussion a head fake. investors business daily says it's suspicious. no one's seen a medical report. the daily caller is picking up the drum beat with a headline where's hillary clinton's medical report? the conspiracies even made it on to tv. >> every foreign service officer in every foreign ministry in the world knows the phrase i'm about to use. when you don't want to go to a meeting or concert or event, you have a diplomatic illness. and this is a diplomatic illness to beat the band. >> they're accusing the secretary of state of playing hooky. they seem to be forgetting that the house could still ask clinton to testify in the future. in fact, they probably will. the right wing has gone from asking where's the birth c
to secretary graham talking about the secretary and the benghazi hearing. >> when her hearing date comes she should testify as current secretary of state. she should be asked, as far as i can tell there was no interview of her in preparing this report. she needs to be asked about what she knew about the deteor eighting circumstances in benghazi. >> we should say she did not appear because she is recovering from that concussion she took as a result of a fall. but have we seen the full fallout from benghazi yet? >> not yet. there's still areas that i'm sure congress is going to want to explore. and i think that senator graham sing correct, that secretary clinton should be asked questions that she apparently was not asked during the course of the investigation. and be held accountable for them. i think that she will be. i think she will testify very forthrightly and one of those issues where, you know, you said at the top of the department and not everything comes to your attention. what the report cited was xroes inadequacies in terms of leadership and management skills at that bureau level an
hearings, all kinds of speeches, all kinds of accusations in the benghazi matter. let's see what the congress does now. and certainly, the president will provide the kind of leadership that is necessary. but it is time. after tucson, after arizona, a member of congress was shot in the head, and there was no response on the issue of gun safety and gun regulations by the united states congress. so we don't need anymore speeches. we need action. we've tried, many of us at the local level and certainly mayor bloomberg and mayor menino, their partnership, mayors against illegal guns. these guns, it's reported, were legally purchased, but obviously, improperly used. clearly, should have been locked up. the gun is gentleman is reported to have maybe have had some mental health challenges. so why would you leave that kind of weaponry, that kind of firepower available to someone who may be struggling from a mental health standpoint? so all of us have a responsibility here, everyone needs to get involved, the american people have had enough. their voices need to be heard and congress needs

[video clip] >> the most important thing is to assure that no benghazi happens in the future. there were plenty of mistakes. in the future, the coordination is to be better. that is the most important thing. i think it was a mistake for mitt romney to use this as a political thing during the campaign. foreign policy should be bipartisan to the extent it is possible. in a time of tragedy, americans need to rally around -- rally together and not try to use it for political partisan purposes. mistakes were made. an ambassador was killed. we need to dissect it and see what happened and make sure it does not happen again. there were recommendations that were made. secretary clinton accepts all of them. she appointed someone to overview. i think that is important. it is not gotcha politics that i want to come out of this. we have to make sure that our diplomats in plac

that party leaders have made too many concessions. key law makers are detailed on the report on the benghazi libya terror atax. and on thursday two of secretary of state hol aids will testify about the act in front of congress. she fell and suffered a concussion and will not be able to be there. former ambassador to the united nations doesn't believe it adds up. >> every foreign ministry knows the phrase i will about to use. when you don't want to go to a meeting or conference event you have a diplomatic illness and this is one to beat the band. i certainly hope it is nothing serious and this was reveal would in a way that was not transparent and i think there is an obligation here. >> doctors say it may take several weeks before mrs. clinton can get back to work. >> he represents hawaii from the time it bicame a state in 1951. and in 1945 in world war ii, he was lobbying hand grenades to the enemy and lost his roit arm. he was friends with a fellow american soldier named bob dole and they went together to champion for veteran's rights . the senator died from respiratory complications and he
immediately following what happened in benghazi and trying to explain that on behalf of the administration. when she went up to capitol hill to meet with lawmakers the visits backfired. they raised a lot of questions and she was there to try to answer them and try to assuage concerns, that was true with senator susan hollins of maine, a republican but a moderate and that was seen as very troubling in all of this process. some critic also say, don, that without the nomination, she was left twisting in the wind but there's also this sense that president obama has a whole lot on his plate. he's obviously involved in this fight over the striking a deal on the fiscal cliff, and then going into next year, a lot of goals obviously to follow on that entitlement reform, spending cuts, tax reform and don't forget immigration reform is also a priority, so i think there was a sense that do you really spend all of this political capital on this fight when there's so many other things to do. >> and so she referenced that as well in her letter that she put out yesterday. alyse, you cover the state depart
objection, so ordered. >> mr. speaker, yesterday was a three-month anniversary of the benghazi, libya, where four people died. mr. wolf: to date, none of the terrorists have been brought to justice. following the attack, the tuesday kneesan government blocked the f.b.i. from interviewing the only detained man. the f.b.i. team has been there for five weeks, and they will not make him available. jans of 2011, the u.s. has given more than $320,000 taxpayer dollars to tunisia. i ask that all u.s. aid to tunisia be cut off because they're blocking the attempt to investigate the terrorist. why are we giving any sort of aid to a country that's proven at this time is no friend or ally to the united states? why are we not doing everything in our power to investigate the events in benghazi that killed four americans? should secretary clinton fail to cut off aid to tunisia, i will take legislative action to cut off the aid to tunisia. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the time of the gentleman has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from washington seek recognition?

communication failures in the fort hood terrorism case, and our current scrutiny of the attacks in benghazi, joe lieberman has always put country first. his actions are guided by deeply held principles and aimed toward progress. he has demonstrated his willingness time and again to risk his political career to do what he believes is right for america. joe brings the same dedication to everything he does. working with him on the armed services committee, i know firsthand how devoted he is to our men and women in uniform, and the deep respect he has for their service and their sacrifice. his leadership in bringing about the repeal of the discriminatory don't ask, don't tell law was nothing short of extraordinary, and it gives me great personal pride to have assisted him in achieving that important victory for justice. and it was vintage joe lieberman. he did what was right. he never gave up. and he got the job done. throughout his many years of dedicated service, joe has demonstrated the kind of character that america needs and that the american people deserve. it is not by coincidence that the po
